Gay Chat Made Simple
Should you send nudes? There are so many decisions to be made, how can one make the right one every time? Well, I've learned from some serious trial-by-fire, how to navigate the dating sphere. Sure, I still screw up most of the time, but I think I have a pretty good handle on what you should do and say when chatting with other gays! That being said, I've compiled this little ultimate guide for those who are struggling to navigate or who just want a second opinion on their decisions!
Like I mentioned before, I'm not always right. No one can be! But after serving as the resident advice-giver to my friends and to various people on the internet, I feel as if I'm not only qualified but obligated to share my expertise when it comes to dating online within the gay community. Here is my ultimate guide to all the gay chat apps out there: If you haven't noticed, there are a million dating apps and sites out there. All of which are vying for your business. So which companies are actually worth your time and money? I've done a little poking around both for business and for pleasure , and these are the conclusions I came to:.
If you haven't heard of Grindr, you must not only be a baby gay, but you must have just hatched because there's no way you haven't heard of Grindr. This app is one of the leading apps out there for gay chatting and hooking up. I'd say that Grindr is the gay equivalent to Tinder in that everyone has tried it and probably still has it downloaded on their phone even if they insist they don't use it anymore. Though, if you've ever used Grindr, you'll know that - unlike Tinder - the app doesn't bother masquerading as a dating app.

People who use Grindr know exactly what they're using Grindr to get: And there's no harm in that so long as you're safe about who you talk to, what information you send, and who you decide to meet up with! The same goes for all other dating and hookup apps. You'll also find a lot of people on Grindr who are looking for people who fit a specific physical demographic think fit, white, and masculine.
There's a lot of discrimination in the gay community which is evident on Grindr.
Scruff seems to be the inclusive response to Grindr. While Grindr will always be a staple in the online gay dating and chatting community, Scruff is looking to create a slightly more inclusive space. They also have Scruff sponsored events and an entire section on their site that helps assist with planning a literal gay-cation - one that avoids non-gay-friendly places, unlike the journey Ellen Page went on for her series of the same name for Vice. Scruff isn't just a gay chat app; it's a community!
I recommend this app for all you baby-gays out there; this will help you get in touch with your local gay community as well as help you navigate gay events and travel in general! Why complicate things?

Gay Chat App is exactly what it says it is: While I like that Scruff built out from their original goal of simply connecting gays on a one-on-one level to facilitating community, I like that this app keeps things simple! And honestly, in the digital age simplicity is something we all strive for in any kind of technology - especially dating apps! Dating is complicated enough, the last things we need are useless features and screens to make it increasingly more difficult. For all of those of you who have slightly darker tastes when it comes to relationships and sex, this one's for you! Sure, Fetlife is a site that caters to people of all genders and sexualities, but there's no denying that the gay community is thriving on this site.
If you want to be linked to other gay people within the kink community, you HAVE to get a Fetlife account. I recommend having other accounts on dating apps in conjunction with your Fetlife account.
Kink can't be your entire life, but it should be a huge part of it if you're into it. Obviously, you don't have to use a dating app to find love or sex, or conversation. You have to remember that there was a point in time before the internet where people met organically and in person! While I don't think you should completely abandon dating apps, you can at least use social media to your advantage! Because you don't have to get a match or alike to slide into someone's DMs and start a conversation.
I know that there's a lot of fear attached to rejection, but the worst thing that can happen is you get turned down, or you gain a platonic friend!
And in my opinion, that chance is well worth the emotional risk. The places where you have the most likely chance of meeting and chatting with someone are on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. I recommend putting your accounts on public on these platforms so that you can get fresh eyes on your face or other parts of your body Don't be afraid to interact with people who follow you or who are your followers; this will make you more comfortable with flirting with them in the future.
A lot of people meet people on social media sites! So don't be afraid.
You might just find your next hookup or life partner on this site! When it comes to making the first move, we all hope that the other person will do the hard work for us. I know that at least for me I don't send the first message because of a combination of being nervous and being afraid of rejection.
When you first come across someone's profile, you can never be sure if they'll get your humor or respond well to your first message. It's scary! Putting yourself out there is hard!
